Default The fix for Cracked Ebay Manifolds.....

Make a new one with quality parts!

Just another warning to anyone considering buying one of these manifolds, They will crack and crack again and again no matter how many times you fix them.

For a 1.6 it does the job, The downpipe has been modified already for a better fit. Some day A 1.8 swap may lead me in a new direction, but this is plenty of fun for now.


I couldn't have done it without the help of zipstrips on this forum, I did all the cutting he did the welding.

One of the good things about the UK is that they are difficult to get over here, well not difficult just cost due to postage.
